HC Deb 13 December 1988 vol 143 c552W
55. Mr. Stevens

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on progress on the current campaign against drugs.

Mr. Mellor

The Government national publicity campaigns against drugs misuse are part of an overall strategy to reduce both the supply of and the demand for illegal drugs. Independent evaluation shows that the campaigns so far have been widely noticed and reinforced young people's resistance to drug misuse. On 21 November a new phase of GB-wide publicity was launched to emphasise the dangers associated with injecting any drug.
